FAIREST OF THEM ALL....
'MIRROR, MIRROR' VS SWATH
Geeksposure takes an in depth look at both Snow White films, 'Mirror, Mirror' and SWATH from all aspects. From the directors to the dwarfs, from costume designers to set designers, Geeksposure places each head-to-head with a perspective of rationality.
In comparing the dwarfs, Geeksposure says the following:
"In Mirror, Mirror we have Mark Povinelli, Jordan Prentice, Danny Woodburn, Sebastian Saraceno, Ronald Lee Clark, Martin Klebba and Joe Gnoffo playing the dwarfs. I don’t seem to have much love going on for Mirror, Mirror but let me just say that I’m extremely impressed to learn that the actors rounding out the dwarfs in this adaptation are actually little people. They all seem to do a great job portraying more Disney-like dwarfs, although I should mention that they aren’t literal adaptations of the seven dwarfs in Disney’s Snow White.
In Snow White and the Huntsman we have Ian McShane, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost, Brian Gleeson, Johnny Harris and Eddie Marsan playing the dwarfs. Yes, there are eight of them in this quality lineup. If you really want to find out why, you can look it up online but it’s probably just best to wait until the film comes out. Anybody who’s familiar with them will know they aren’t actually little people but the short glimpse we can see of them in the trailers leads me to believe that the digital height alteration and trick photography is flawless. The dwarfs are nothing like the dwarfs in the Disney adaptation. Beith is the leader of the dwarfs, Coll is the timid dwarf, Nion is the biggest and burliest of the crew, Muir is the solemn and blind dwarf, Quert is the angry dwarf, Duir and Gort are the twins and Gus is the young dwarf who is seemingly smitten with Snow White."
